Realtek RTL8168/8111 Ethernet Adapter just stopped working

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It's been a long time since I've tinkered with my build - Lion 10.7.3 Never updated to a higher version since, IMHO, my build is perfect (well save for sleep, but I really don't need it). It has also been a couple of weeks since I last used Lion, but this morning I just could not connect to the internet. when I check the System Configuration, it says my PC is unplugged (I'm using DSL) but when I check the back of my CPU, the cable is physically connected to the ethernet/LAN port. I've unplugged-plugged it just to check if that will work, but no results. I can verify that I have a connection to the internet when I boot to my Win7 (which is what I'm using right now). I have not updated anything major (not even updating to 10.7.5). It was only the Sophos Anti-Virus that was updated the last time I used my Lion and even after the update, the Lion was still working - I was downloading some Guitar Lessons via Garage Band.

so any solutions or anybody encountered this problem before?

I downloaded the RTL8111 kext here I'll try to rebuild the kext because I can't remember if I used the "many animals" utility from "that famous site" to install my kexts before.

 

I did see that there is a new driver for the RTL8111, however I don't want to mess around with it as of the moment because my problems become more complicated. It might be my last solution though.

Thanks so much for any help.

nah, i don't mess around with the BIOS. but here's the thing, after installing a new IONetworking.kext and a new Realtek RTL8111.kext, nothing was still happening. i decided to delete the IONetworking.kext and leave the Realtek8111.kext. moments after deleting the IONetworking.kext, my Lion just connected itself automatically. i'm not sure if that is the right solution or what. but i'm back connected to the net. I just rebuilt my kext cache and will see if i can log in again with a net connection.

celebrated prematurely, after the above and logging back in, no internet again and System Preferences was hanging when I click on Network. so I deleted the Realtek kext I left and installed the new version of IONetwork kext, rebuilt the cache, restart and here I am back in the saddle.

 

I hope you guys don't mind what I'm doing, because you'll never know who might encounter the same problem and by doing this, I hope I can or I was able to provide some sort of help.

still acting up. sheesh...

 

with the "new" IONetworking kext installed (stock kext with the official realtek kext plugin), i got random hangs. it can range from Lion letting me use the PC for 40mins (give or take) or a few minutes after restart. i'll post the log tomorrow, in the meantime i'll give this thing a rest.

 

hopefully somebody could chime in with some solutions. my brain is melting at the moment for solutions, because like i said above, my setup worked perfectly before then it just threw a diva b*tch act this morning.

      Hi people,
       
      Installer to activate the sound card REALTEK ALC282-v2 (10ec:0282) with LayoutID 1 or 3 in MacOS. This installer does not contain AppleHDA patched Kext. To work properly, it must be installed over vanilla AppleHDA.kext.
       
      I want to thank the whole community for their efforts and content provided, because without these it would not be possible to create this installer.
       
      I would appreciate comments and suggestions!!

      I want to patch AppleHDA but I cannot find any post talking about ALC3220, I Tried AppleALC (ALC280 - layout-id 11), and AppleHDA Patcher v1.9  (ALC280 - layout-id 5) with no luck.
      I Also Tried VodooHDA but it is very buggy an unstable !
       
      So Now Please find my Codec details below

      Being asked to add support for Realtek's Fast Ethernet PCIe NICs to my RTL8111 driver I got tired of answering the same old question again and again so that I finally decided to write a separate driver for these chips and to make a few of you guys and gals happy.
       
      As of now the driver supports the following members the RTL810X Fast Ethernet family:
      RTL8101E RTL8102E RTL8103E RTL8401E RTL8105E RTL8402 RTL8106E RTL8106EUS RTL8107E Here is a list of the driver's basic features:
      Supports Sierra (maybe El Capitan). 64 bit architecture only. Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission. No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer. TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit). TCP segmentation offload under IPv4. Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload. Supports Wake on LAN. Support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which can be disabled by setting enableEEE to NO in the drivers Info.plist without rebuild. The default is YES. The driver is published under GPLv2. Built using Xcode 4.6.3.  
      Changelog Version 2.0.1 (2018-05-10): Fixes a problem with retrieval of the permanent MAC address on some chips. Version 2.0.0 (2017-04-04): Uses Apple's private driver interface introduced with 10.8. Adds support for the RTL8107E. Supports packet scheduling with QFQ. Adds support for flow control and EEE. Version 1.0.0 (2014-05-24): First offical release.     Installation   Before you install the driver you have to remove any installed driver for RTL810X. Goto /S/L/E and delete the old driver.

      Salve, sto ancora tentando di far funzionare il mio lettore di schede SD, macos lo riconosce in resoconto di sistema ma non funziona, in firma c'è il modello esatto e gli id che ottengo da resoconto di sistema, ho provato a seguire varie guide e oggi ho trovato questa che sembrerebbe aver funzionato a questo utente: 
      Secondo voi è una buona idea eliminare un kext di sistema? E poi questi kext di cui parla dove gli trovo? Grazie a tutti

      A New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

      Due to the lack of an OS X driver that makes use of the advanced features of the Realtek RTL81111/8168 series I started a new project with the aim to create a state of the art driver that gets the most out of those NICs which can be found on virtually any cheap board on the market today. Based on Realtek's Linux driver (version 8.035.0) I have written a driver that is optimized for performance while making efficient use of system resources and keeping the CPU usage down under heavy load.

      Key Features of the Driver
      Supports Realtek RTL8111/8168 B/C/D/E/F/G found on recent boards. Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission. No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer. TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit). TCP segmentation offload under IPv4. Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload. Fully optimized for Mountain Lion (64bit architecture) but should work with Lion too. As of now there is no support for Snow Leopard but it can be added if someone will create the necessary patches. Supports Wake on LAN. Support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which can be disabled by setting enableEEE to NO in the drivers Info.plist without rebuild. The default is YES. The driver is published under GPLv2. Limitations
      As checksum offload doesn't work with jumbo frames they are currently unsupported and will definitely never be. No support for 32bit kernels. Installation
      Before you install the driver you have to remove any installed driver for RTL8111/8168.
      Goto /S/L/E and delete the old driver (Lnx2mac, AppleRealtekRTL8169, etc.). Recreate the kernel cache. Open System Preferences and delete the corresponding network interface, e. g. en0. If you forget this step you might experience strange problems with certain Apple domains, iTunes and iCloud later. Reboot. Install the new driver and recreate the kernel cache. I recommend to use Kext Wizard or a similar utility for the installation. Reboot Open System Preferences again, select Network and check if the new network interface has been created automatically or create it manually now. Configure the interface. Troubleshooting
      Make sure you have followed the installation instructions especially when you have issues with certain domains while the others are working fine. Use the debug version to collect log data when trying to track down problems. The kernel log messages can be found in /var/log/system.log. For Sierra and above use "log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug" in order to retrieve kernel logs. Include the log data when asking for support or giving feedback. I'm an engineer, not a clairvoyant. Check your BIOS settings. You might want to disable Network Boot and the UEFI Network Stack as these can interfere with the driver. Double check that you have removed any other Realtek kext from your system because they could prevent the driver from working properly.

      How can I retrieve the kernel logs?In Terminal type "grep kernel /var/log/system.log". ​I want to disable Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) but I don't know how?​Take a look at the driver's Info.plist file. There you will find an option named <key>enableEEE</key>. Change its value from <true/> to <false/>. Don't forget to recreate the kernel cache after changing the value.​ WoL from S5 doesn't work with this driver but under Windows it's working. Is this a driver bug?No it isn't, the driver is working as it should because OS X doesn't support WoL from S5. Current status
      The driver has been successfully tested under 10.8.x and 10.9 with the B, C, D, E, F and G versions of the RTL8111/8168 and is known to work stable on these devices. Changelog
      Version 2.2.2 (2018-01-21) Force ASPM state to disabled/enabled according to the config parameter setting. Requires 10.12 or newer. Version 2.2.1 (2016-03-12): Updated underlying linux sources from Realtek to 8.041.00. Added support for RTL8111H. Implemented Apple’s polled receive driver model (RXPOLL). Requires 10.11 or newer. Support for older versions of OS X has been dropped. Version 2.0.0 (2015-06-21): ​Uses Apple's private driver interface introduced with 10.8. Supports packet scheduling with QFQ. Please note that 2.0.0 is identical to 2.0.0d2. Only the version number has changed. Version 1.2.3 (2014-08-23):Reworked TSO4 and added support for TSO6. Version 1.2.2 (2014-08-44): ​Added an option to disable Active State Power Management (ASPM, default disabled) as ASPM seems to result in unstable operation of some chipsets. ​Resolved a problem with Link Aggregation after reboot. Added a workaround for the multicast filter bug of chipset 17 (RTL8111F) which prevented Bonjour from working properly​ ​Version 1.2.0 (2014-04-24): Updated underlying linux sources from Realtek to 8.037.00. Improved interrupt mitigate to use a less aggressive value for 10/100 MBit connections. ​Version 1.1.3 (2013-11-29): Improved transmit queue handling made it possible to reduce CPU load during packet transmission. Improved deadlock detection logic in order to avoid false positives due to lost interrupts. Version 1.1.2 (2013-08-03): Improved SMB performance in certain configurations. Faster browsing of large shares. ​Version 1.1.0 (2013-06-08): Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload added (can be disabled in Info.plist). Maximum size of the scatter-gather-list has been increased from 24 to 40 segments to resolve performance issues with TSO4 when offloading large packets which are highly fragmented. TSO4 can be disabled in Info.plist without rebuild. Statistics gathering has been improved to deliver more detailed information (resource shortages, transmitter resets, transmitter interrupt count). The interrupt mitigate settings has been changed to improve performance with SMB and to reduce CPU load. Configuration option added to allow for user defined interrupt mitigate settings without rebuild. Version 1.0.4 (2013-05-04):Moved setLinkStatus(kIONetworkLinkValid) from start() to enable(). Cleaned up getDescCommand(). Version 1.0.3 (2013-04-25):​The issue after a reboot from Windows has been eliminated. Version 1.0.2 (2013-04-22):​Added support for rx checksum offload of TCP and UDP over IPv6. Version 1.0.1 (2013-03-31): Improved behavior when rx checksum offload isn't working properly. Adds the chipset's model name to IORegistry so that it will show up in System Profiler. Known Issues
      There are still performance problems with regard to SMB in certain configurations. My tests indicate that Apple's Broadcom driver shows the same behavior with those configurations. Obviously it's a more general problem that is not limited to my driver. WoL does not work in certain configurations. Old systems with 3 and 4 series chipsets exhibit performance issues in recent versions of macOS because there is no optimized power management for these systems in macOS anymore as Apple dropped support for the underlying hardware a long time ago. In case you are affected, please upgrade your hardware or find an alternative solution because I have no plans for a workaround. Sorry, but I don't think that it's worth the effort.
